Taylor Swift responded to a survey that declared her the biggest celebrity CO2 polluter.
Swift spokeswoman told Rolling Stone that Taylor’s plane is regularly loaned to others. “To assign most of these trips solely to her is completely wrong.”
Yard has released Friday’s study based upon an analysis of flights by private aircraft tracked using the automated flight tracking system. Celebrity Jets, and found that Swift’s jet logged the most emissions of the pack, and found her private jet has taken a whopping 170 flights since January
It was Kylie Jenner who, earlier this year, had been called a “climate criminal” for sharing a photograph of Travis Scott in their matching private jets.

He said that aviation is responsible for 2.4% of all human-produced CO2e each year. Research also shows a wide gap between super-rich people and ordinary citizens regarding travel, flights and general emissions.
Swift is not on tour in this year’s year. She has only performed twice in 2022 in New York City and London (above), and her plane has flown over 170 times this calendar year.

Jay Z, Steven Spielberg and Mark Wahlberg are eco-hypocrites. They lecture us on saving the earth… then they use their private jets to fly in minutes instead of driving.

However, these stars then take their private jets of multimillion dollar worth to go on journeys that last just minutes and are often quicker than a car.

Their journeys have been documented by @celebjets on Twitter. Most trips take less than 30 minutes, and many of them are shorter than that.
Wahlberg’s plane was in flight for only nine minutes, as it flew across LA. Spielberg’s took 17 minutes.
After Kylie Jenner flew for 12 minutes across California on a social media platform, she was called a “climate criminal” by eco-warriors.
Kourtney, her older sister, was subject to a lot of backlash from fans after she posted about carbon emissions in February – despite family members’ excessive use of private planes.
Experts in aviation have stated that private aircraft should focus on responsible travel, using carbon offset schemes.
A short-haul flight of less than 10 minutes may result in 1 ton Co2 emissions, as well as the burning of gallons.
